The windows are in; the installers are just working on exterior moulding and trim. But I’ve suffered a bit of a setback in my quest for an untroubled life. It turns out that the new windows are a bit thicker than the old ones — I mean the whole assembly of inside window, outside storm window and screen — and as a result, they were installed such that the inside edge is a lot closer to the plane of the inside walls than before. With the old windows, I mostly had blinds (either horizontal or vertical) installed inside the window frame. Now I won’t be able to do that, and will have to replace just about every one.
I didn’t expect this, so now I get to spend money on new window treatments that until today I didn’t need. And worse, I have to spend the time shopping and installing whatever I buy. This, on top of having to put all my boxes o’ stuff and furniture back where it belongs.
Maybe I’ll just nail bedsheets and tablecloths over the windows. *sigh*
The new windows are very nice, though, and they do seem more energy-efficient.
